Alexandra Popp to score and Germany Women to win vs Colombia > 7/4
Germany thrashed Morocco 6-0 in their World Cup opener and star forward Popp struck twice in the first half.
Colombia should provide a bigger test than the North African nation, but Germany will still fancy their chances of claiming the points as they look to qualify early.
Terence Crawford to win by KO/TKO or Disqualification vs Errol Spence Jr > 3/1
The highlight of this weekend’s sporting calendar is arguably the mouth-watering boxing bout between unbeaten duo Terence Crawford and Errol Spence Jr.
The winner will become the first unified welterweight champion in the four-belt era and Crawford has a chance to become just the third fighter in history to be a unified champ in two weight-classes. ‘Bud’ has won 30 of his 39 fights inside the distance and has been boosted to 3/1 to make Spence his 31st KO victim.
Jan Blachowicz to win by KO/TKO/DQ or Submission vs Alex Pereira > 7/2
Dustin Poirier against Justin Gaethje is the headline event at UFC 291 but there are some quality clashes on the undercard, including a light heavyweight battle between Jan Blachowicz and Alex Pereira.
Blachowicz has a strong ground game and has nine wins by submission, so backing him to win by KO/TKO/DQ or Submission may be the way to go.’
